Introduction to Python for Non-programmers, Part One (Hands-on)

Prerequisite: zero programming experience. We will go slowly so that everyone understands programming concepts, like loops and functions.

This is an introduction to the essential features of Python. This tutorial includes a brief introduction to basic types (Integer, Float, String, and Boolean), if-statements, functions, lists, dictionaries, loops, and modules. We’ll look at some simple interactive tasks. After this tutorial you’ll be ready to explore all the amazing modules Python has to offer.

This is a two part tutorial, so please sign up for both parts.
